's only important to the extent that it's bringing more awareness to the uncertainty of the science around the debate. when you go back and look at the temperature projections from climate models and compare them to actual temperatures, two things are readily evident. first, temperatures have flat lined over the last 15 years, and secondly, an average of over 100 climate models from the last decade show that the scientific community did not predict this would happen. to my knowledge, not a single climate model ever predicted that a pause in global warming would ever occur. senator sessions is going to go deeper into this. the truth completely contradicts the president's statement and begs the question as to why he and the epa not only continue to deny the truth but why it has raced to stop this information from disseminating into scientific record. what i'm referring to is the administration's effort with other nations to lobby the ipcc to back up the president's statement in the most recent report. and while i did not think the ipcc explanation was sufficient, i have to at least give them

- a regular amount of dopamine and here is where my weak spot is. i was bad at maths and science. >> here you are depending on both. >> yes. here i am, you know, talking about something - an operation that is - it's mysterious, actually. maybe i'm making - putting myself down too hard. i will always love that. because in a way that it's really not very well-known, exactly why this works as well as it does. i mean, there's so much study to be done on the brain that in 50 years i can well imagine this not being the situation at all. >> the treatment is so general, the signal sent to the brain is blanket. >> they are different targets in the brain to aim for. one you aim for a person depending on his personality and the skills, word skills or search and memory recall. so you can - so one person will have one target, another person another. since i'm basically a verbal person, there's one target for me that may be different for another person. em, you were going to say -- >> i don't think the neuroproduces dopamine, i think it regulates the action. >> this is what happens when you are a writer. n
